We are excited to announce a collaboration this month with Professor Robert Mikos. Each week in April, Professor Mikos will contribute a post covering a specific legal issue in the cannabis space, beginning on April 2nd with an Idaho case regarding the seizure of hemp.
Professor Mikos is one of the nation’s leading authorities on cannabis law and policy. Over the past decade he has published, testified, consulted, and lectured extensively on the competing approaches to regulating cannabis and the struggles among federal, state, and local officials for control over this policy domain. Professor Mikos has also published the pioneering textbook on the subject, Marijuana Law, Policy, and Authority (Wolters Kluwer 2017), and a companion website and blog that analyze breaking developments in the field.
Professor Mikos earned his A.B. cum laude from Princeton University and his J.D. summa cum laude from the University of Michigan. After graduation, Mikos clerked for Chief Judge Michael Boudin of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. He now teaches Constitutional Law, Federalism, and Marijuana Law and Policy at Vanderbilt University. Professor Mikos has also taught at the University of Michigan, the University of Notre Dame, and the University of California, Davis.
Other posts from Professor Mikos this month will include a discussion of civil RICO cases in Colorado and Oregon, a discussion focused on cannabis taxation issues, and a piece on workers compensation and employment discrimination in cannabis.
